Beauty is only a reality when a heart is open enough to appreciate it.
Beauty then is a perception, as much about the perceiver as the object of observation,
and therefore connection can only every be individual,
understood by the selfless admiration of a heart and mind attuned.
What is beauty to one, can be unexceptional to another,
and so the power of beauty exists only in the heart of the observer,
the union one chooses to make with a perceived aesthetic or value,
through the eyes of heart unencumbered by rivalry.
Beauty can deliver a soul to higher consciousness,
by elevating the senses and the realisation of the concept of perfection,
unattainable by mere humans but in nature ever-present,
a never-ending display of possibility and inspiration.
What more can be said of beauty than it is an ideal we seek,
whether it be appearance, a loving heart, a selfless act or simply kindness,
beauty exists within each of us, as a consequence of our ability to perceive it,
and in this way beauty connects our hearts in a meaningful way.
With open eyes, the world is filled with beauty,
but in order to perceive it, we must have it within us first,
otherwise from which perspective would we deem it beauty,
beauty then, in all probability, would be bland and unremarkable .
Of beauty we can say, it stirs a soul to appreciation and humility,
it makes a heart light, and the miracles that surround us abundant.
In a world filled with so much contention and ugliness,
Beauty is our saviour, our giver of hope.
